Match Report: Towcestrians 17 - Leamington 24
By Matt Anderson
Frustration at leamington!
After a well contested match allround in very windy conditions the game was 12-5 to Tows at half time. Tows having most of the possession and territory again.
Playing into the wind 2nd half made things much tougher but Tows went into the last 60 seconds at 17-17 and putting massive pressure on the opposition literally 2 meters from the try line.
However the only real threat in the Leamington back line intercepted a pass as Tows went to spread it wide and stretching play, running to score between the posts. Conversion got, whistled blew and game over.
Weather was a factor today and how you played the conditions. There were also some frustrations with certain elements of the game today, but that’s just Rugby sometimes fellas. Result could very easily have gone the other way.
Lots of positves, but as always stuff to learn and to work on.
Result: Tows 17 - Leamington 24
Tries: Harvey, Ike, Will
MOM: Matt Eastwood - Winger converted to flanker today and did very well.
DOD: George Wade - Don’t forget your boots next time
